The Humanitarian Learning Centre (HLC) has launched a report arguing that ‘mass starvation’ should be considered a war crime

"Famine: Lessons Learned" was produced as the world was responding to four potential famines simultaneously – in Nigeria, South Sudan, Yemen and Somalia.

Much has been written and researched on famine, and many lessons on how to best prevent and respond to famine have been learned the hard way.

This paper therefore draws on lessons learned from the last 30-plus years of famine crises and response, going back to famines in Ethiopia and Sudan in the 1980s, up to the most recent famine in Somalia in 2011.

 

The Humanitarian Learning Centre is a joint initiative of the Institute of Development Studies, the International Rescue Committee and Crown Agents
